BRING US BACK FROM THE BRINK!
Water Damage Received at the Taube Museum of Art!
The lower level of the Taube Museum of Art was flooded on
three different occasions due to a combination of the downtown construction
on Central Avenue and heavy summer rains. Insurance only covered a portion
of the clean-up costs and did not cover any of the restoration work needed
to bring the lower level back from the brink! Click Here To Find Out How You Can Help

Heart & Soul
The Main Gallery exhibition at the Taube Museum of Art, Heart and Soul will be on display from October 27 – November 20, 2015. This exhibition will feature a solo watercolor exhibition of Caroline A. Doucette’s work. For more than 25 years, she has cultivated her excellent reputation as an internationally known watercolorist and visual artist. She creates remarkable, one-of-a-kind watercolor paintings. She is a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society, the Red River Watercolor Society, Fargo, ND, the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, NYC. She has been published in both the Summer 1996 issue and the Spring 2000 issue of the Watercolor magazine. Her painting To Life appears in the book Splash 5: The Glory of Color. Her paintings are in a number of collections including the Minot State University, Minot, ND, the Taube Museum of Art, Minot, ND and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA. Doucette has received a large number of awards and recognition for her work. Most recently, she was distinguished as an Elite American Artist.
Doucette states, “I really like to paint flowers. They are fun and they can be played with. Originally, I found flowers so simple but then I found I could play with the wonderful colors and shadows and get right down into them like some magical fairy. I like to use a simple palette of red, blue, yellow, cool, and warm so I can get nice rich, brilliant, vivid, clean colors that will sit on my hot press paper in such a delightful way.”
Artistic talent runs in the family, her mother is an artist, as was her grandmother. As play, her mother taught her perspective drawing when she was 4 years old. With her first camera at 11 years old, her father, who had once worked with the photography department in the US Air Force, taught her the fundamentals of composition. In December of 1989, her husband encouraged her to paint full time, suggesting she use watercolors and later to specialize in florals. Following his intuition and guidance, she began to win awards and recognition. In November 2000, her husband’s business relocated moving to Rugby, North Dakota from Nashua, New Hampshire. Her work can also be viewed at www.carolinedoucette.com.
